CHORUS:


I Love myself when I am laughing


And then again when I’m looking mean and impressive


 


I Love myself when I am laughing


And then again when I’m looking mean and impressive


 


 


My eyes too big


my breasts too small


my teeth are crooked and 


I don’t even really like my nose at all


but when I look at all the people I see


I know there is something beautiful 


that God wants us to see


but the voices in my head; they just betray me


 


I say instead:


 


CHORUS: 2xs


 


Verse 2


When I recall Life back then........


I was just a little girl, must’ve been ‘round 9 or 10


 


And, I looked at my father when he told me


Disaster, Triumph, Fear -- they’re not reality


He said: Be Strong!  Be Strong!  So Strong!


He said......


 


CHORUS: 2xs


 


Verse 3


And Mum said...Fear is False perception...


Don’t be afraid, Believe!  Believe!  


Believe in the dreams that you see!


 


She said.....


 


CHORUS: 2xs
